Washingon: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is currently on a three-day US visit, is scheduled to address the joint session of the US Congress on Wednesday. He will be the fifth Indian PM to do so.
PM Modi arrived here on Monday from Switzerland on his second bilateral visit to the US after his trip in September, 2014. This is PM Modi's fourth visit to the US since he assumed office in May 2014.
The PM is visiting US at the invitation of Obama, who in the last year of his presidency is inviting a few world leaders with whom he shared a 'close and productive working relationship'.
Since 2014, there have been six meetings and countless phone calls between Obama and PM Modi.
